All three names have Super Bowl success in their pedigrees.

Byron Leftwich, Tom Brady and the Bucs offense scored 31 points against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. In his second season at the helm of Brady, Leftwich helps set up another Pro Bowl-level season for the 44-year-old QB and makes him one of the major offensive minds in the league. Leftwich was also a former first-round pick for the Jags, playing Jacksonville quarterback between 2003-06 and three years younger than his Brady.

Doug Pederson’s nearly five years as the Eagles head coach produced the franchise’s first Super Bowl (LII) victory and a lasting offensive offense under Carson Wentz and Nick Foles. Prior to his run with the Eagles, Pederson joined the Kansas City Chiefs coaching staff led by Andy Reid in 2013 as the offensive coordinator.

Jim Caldwell was the head coach of the Colts between 2009-11 and the Lions HC between 2014-17, producing a combined 62-50 record during that time. During his time as interim offensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens during the 2012-13 season, Caldwell helped guide Joe Flacco to a Harbaugh Bowl (XLVII) championship victory over the San Francisco 49ers. .
